High-performance Computing (HPC) with Design Spine Enhancement in Education Builds a Skillset for Innovation and Entrepreneurship
The education and training in High-Performance Computing (HPC) and the Design Spine structure is the tool to provide instruction to students, faculty, and staff in university courses, online material, and workshops.
“HPC Enables institutions to integrate new data and increase model resolution. Design Spine allows institutions to design courses and create new modified courses. Design Spine is a unique multidisciplinary experience focusing on” HPC (computer base) to integrate new data to increase model resolution. HPC is now used in academics to support the academic and administrative divisions. For example, it can be used in planning, curriculums, management related to enrollment, tuition-prepared worksheets, schedules, files, customer care solution software and hardware, developing and revising curricula, and in programs such as Syllabus and student Learning Objective (SLO). The Design Spine system can be used to design courses and create new and updated existing curricula. Simultaneously, it can combine several academic disciplines or professional specializations to create a project with Design Spine to help students with advanced experience in Business Administration and Information Technology (IT) Management. With the combined Design Spine and HPC, a Design Spine curriculum will lend itself to the HPC criteria since the industry’s talents are the exact requirements in a Design Spine system. For example, working on a problem from start to finish involves creativity, problem-solving, critical thinking, prioritizing social responsibility, utilizing communications, and learning to organize and process project management skills. When the students learn with this method, their education and thoughts are much less disjointed. The subjects are no longer separate in their mind but flow together quickly to solve a problem from the top down. Integrating technology into the curricula with the Learning Management System (LMS) will enhance students’ learning processes and outcomes. Figure 1. Provides a possible benefit to students, faculty, and institutions from combined Design Spine and HPC Curriculum.
Problem-based learning pedagogy in teaching at institutions has benefited all the engaged stakeholders. The application of Design Spine and HPC in teaching pedagogy takes the learning process a step further, providing the students with the ability to be self-learners, using online and internet resources effectively. Incorporating the two applications, spine design and HPC, can be more effective in a student’s learning process than just adopting one pedagogy alone. Integrating design spine and HPC benefits students, faculty, and institutions. The HPC community uses web content and workshops to allow practitioners to harness the power of distributed and parallel computing. The design spine approach teaches HPC skills, using multidisciplinary teams and open-ended real-life projects with various industry clients. A blended approach to learning helps prepare for HPC skills. This design approach combines the academic content and advanced skill development to work on real-world-class projects.
